Browsers not playing MP3 links

Both the Silk browser and my (sideloaded) Dolphin browser are having the same problem with web page links to simple MP3 files. Flash audios play fine, but a straight link to an MP3 file doesn't — won't play it, nor can I download it using tap and hold. Copying the link URL and pasting it into a new web page reports a 404 Page Not Found error. I've verified the links are valid and functioning normally using my computer, iPad, and Transformer. Looks like a limitation in the Fire. Anyone else seen this? Any suggestions?

Try Opera Mini. I downloaded a podcast in mp3 just fine with it.
